A sensation in the studio
Choose choice. There's a reason countless pro bassists turn to the MB 150S for their recording sessions - it's magnificently versatile. Loaded with GK's famous 4-band active EQ, it'll allow you to shape your tone until it's just right. The MB 150S also features numerous voicing profiles that give you even further control over your sound. A "Low Cut" function eliminates sub tones in the low end to help your bass notes sound sharper, while a "Hi-Boost" feature makes high frequencies sing.
That's far from the end of what this amazing amp can do. FX send and return means you can use the MB 150S as part of an external effects loop. And a top-quality DI ensures you can lay down crisp, precise basslines with sparkling clarity. There's no end to the potential that this can give to your music.
Powerful live sound
The Gallien Krueger MB 150S is no one trick pony. While it may be fantastic in the studio, it'll bring an immense new dimension to your live performances, too. Not only does it bring all of the aforementioned tone control features to help you sculpt your sound, it's also packed with up to 150 watts of power.
This, basically, means it's loud. A high-clarity 12" ceramic speaker delivers superbly balanced tone and will communicate your basslines clearly and with definition. You can ramp up the volume further - the MB 150S will let you disengage its speaker and double your sonic power by running up to two separate cabs. This all comes in a compact unit that's super-easy to transport. Your ultimate gigging companion.
Ready for anything
Reliability. A vital quality that every serious musician looks for when they're selecting their gear. You can be sure with the GK MB 150S Combo that you're getting industry-leading quality that'll perform - night after night. It's been made with only the highest quality components to ensure its status as a long-lasting, road-ready legend of bass sound.
Many players report using their MB 150S amps for decades. Because there's no need to seek out anything else when you're already enjoying the best in bass performance. And it really has been built to last. Its extremely rugged welded aluminium chassis provided maximum protection to the speaker, and can really take a bump. So it's well equipped for the rough treatment that goes hand-in-hand with a demanding touring schedule.
Pioneering bass amplification for the very best
Pedigree. It's important. When you're investing in anything that's driving your sound, you need to be certain that you're getting the best in quality. From manufacturers who know what they're doing. Well, how does over 50 years of amp innovations - that became standard around the world - sound for pedigree?

GK invented the first amps with channel switching. The first amp in a metal enclosure (a bass amp which happened to become a favourite of Led Zeppelin). The first contour control. The first 1000 watt bass head. The list goes on. And on. Gallien Krueger really are masters of giving you the tools you need to make your bass sound better than ever. For industry-leading quality, look no further than GK.
